Apple has updated its AirPods Pro with a USB-C charging case, joining the iPhone 15 series and other recent Apple products in making the switch from Lightning to USB-C. The new AirPods Pro will be available starting September 22 for $249.
The new charging case is identical to the previous version in terms of size and shape, but it has a USB-C port on the bottom instead of a Lightning port. This makes it easier to charge the AirPods Pro with newer MacBooks and other USB-C devices.
The new AirPods Pro also has some software improvements. They now support spatial audio, which creates a three-dimensional soundscape for movies and music. They also have a new Conversation Boost feature that makes it easier to hear people talking in noisy environments.
Overall, the new AirPods Pro are a minor update, but the addition of USB-C is a welcome change. It makes it easier to charge the AirPods Pro and makes them more compatible with other devices.
